Joe, you are simply amazing!

Joe Faust goes Presidential and receives a letter from Rose Mary Woods.

(Is it ok if I reprint from your copyright?)

Yes: OK to print from my copyright! Thank you, Michael ! I've not seen those two letters since 1971.

You can't copyright letters to and from the President of the United States.     :ugeek:
They are public domain.
This one, however, may have been TOP SECRET.

If only Nixon and Halderman had taken John Dean along on their clandestine hang gliding flights in those months prior to Watergate...

Joe,

Six feet eleven and a half inches was pretty good for 1960 as the world record at that time was by John Thomas (USA) of seven feet thee and three/eights. You were within four inches of the world record at the time.

Always soaring to new heights.

Congratulations,

mg
